Meet The Team
A perfect blend of creativity, technical wizardry, and one dedicated beta tester.
The best formula for digital chemistry.
Jon has loved hi-fidelity his entire life. With his first (ever) paycheck he invested in a pair of speakers. While in college, his study breaks were spent daydreaming in hi-fi stereo shops. After graduating with a degree in engineering, he worked as an automotive engineer for 10 years honing his skills in customer service and satisfaction as the liaison between the customers and engineers. Jon brings his experience listening to customers and implementing their thoughts and ideas to the Sound Vision. In 2007 Jon merged his hobby and passion (of all things automation, A/V, geeky) and launched The Sound Vision. Jon is a CEDIA certified installer, home acoustics alliance level 1 and in the summer of 2015 he graduated from the Goldman Sach’s 10K small business program. Jon’s favorite remote tester is his 7 year old daughter.
- Meet Emery, She's been beta testing remote controls and other breakable products at The Sound Vision for as long as she can remember.

We are not here to move boxes. The Sound Vision is a service based company. Of course we still sell all of our systems components, we are not here to tell you what you want or need. We listen to your dreams and create a solid plan to reach them.
While working at Circuit City in his younger years, Nick discovered he was a lover of all things technical. At the University of Michigan in Dearborn the tech bug bit Nick again and in 2009 he started working in the home automation field and hasn’t looked back. In his down time he can be found researching new ideas and products; figuring out how to make them work for The Sound Vision. He is Control 4 level certified (1 and 2) and his favorite place to be is hanging with his wife and sons. Nick is easy going and focused on detail. Installation of technology for The Sound Vision is utmost priority to him. Favorite part of his craft? A happy and satisfied customer.

She started with primarily building equipment racks, configuring networks, and Control4 programming, but now handles a lot of the remote troubleshooting and system engineering/design.
